In this episode of "things you should never say to your wife," I present to you a legitimate conversation that occurred in the Baum household this very evening:

Sarah: Remember that one time when you didn't listen to me and you missed out on something important?  Because that happens at LEAST daily.
Dan:  I do listen to you.
Sarah: No you don't.  I can give you some examples.
Dan: It's just that you talk a lot.
Sarah: ...(no words)...
Dan: I didn't mean that in a mean way, it's just that you're very chatty.
Sarah: That doesn't mean you don't have to listen to me. 
Dan: It's not that I don't listen, it's more like I listen to the first four or five words and then make a judgment call on whether the rest is going to be important.
Sarah: ...still no words because I can't believe that he actually admitted to this out loud...keep digging that hole, Prince Danny!

He went on to tell me that he normally listens to me when I'm talking about things that pertain to Lilly, and I was quick to give examples of how that is not true. I'm pretty sure he should have stopped at, "I do listen to you."  :-)

Anyway, the purpose of this post is to share a few cute pictures that I've taken this week, but they didn't really fall into any particular category.  So without further ado, behold the cuteness and enjoy!

OK, so this first picture isn't really "cute," but I wanted the world to see how my child sleeps.  It's a wonder I ever get any sleep because even though I know she has excellent head control, how is it possible that she doesn't suffocate?  She seriously sleeps face down.  Is she trying to give me panic attacks?!

I am afraid to let L play on the bed any more for the most part when I'm getting ready because she is on the move, so this is a picture of her playing on the floor the other morning while I was getting ready for work.  Seriously?  It's a wonder I ever even make it out the door.  That face!

Our good friend the piano gym which I have raved about quite a few times before.  Lilly LOVES this thing, and I love that she can grow with it (thanks to the Mauldin/Abreu family for one of her favorite toys!).  Future concert pianist?  So serious about it!

In this one I had just had to wake her up from a nap, so she wasn't quite awake yet and therefore I couldn't get a good smile, but the outfit is so cute that I couldn't resist!

Remember when the pediatrician told us it was OK to give Lilly water?  This is the face we get when we try.  Apparently water is not nearly as delicious as breast milk?

Lilly still LOVES to swim.  In fact we've noticed that she doesn't fuss as much anymore when we put on sunscreen or her swimsuit - I think it's because she knows what's coming (this is not to say she never fusses in these situations, just not as much as she used to and sometimes not at all).  We go to the pool whenever we can - even on week days before dinner/bath/bed if there's time!  Now if only we could get rid of these evening storms that have been prohibiting pool time (or cutting it short) for the past few days...

Lately Dan has started putting Lilly on his shoulders (in general, not just at the pool).  She LOVES it.  She spends the whole time cackling or trying to eat his hair:

That's all for tonight...I'm off to watch some more of the Olympics until I can't keep my eyes open!  I am such a sucker for the Olympics.  I think I have cried more this week watching the winners and their parents than I did when I was pregnant.  Okay, maybe not.  ;-)

Happy hump day!



  1. I read this out loud to Casey and he died laughing at Dan's answers! We can't wait to party with you guys soon!!! :) XOXOXOS

  2. I've always heard honesty is the best policy... I guess that's up for debate now.
